Should add to this list that pth appears to be completely broken on ia64
(both 1.4.1 and 2.0.0 versions). The package compiles but fails it's
own self-tests (make test, which is not part of it's build process).
This results in any application that uses pth blowing up on execution.
There are two bugs against pth for this #225780 and #208583, the pth
maintainer has yet to respond to either of them.
